    Threatened by gun-wielding crooks, woman pulls her gun and saves the day.

    When a couple reportedly responded to an ad on craigslist and attempted to buy a vehicle, the pair of men with whom they were dealing revealed firearms and threatened them in an attempted robbery.

    The female victim drew her concealed firearm and fired at one of the crooks, who was pointing his own gun at her boyfriend. The other bad guy fled.

    The victims then left the scene, driving to a nearby gas station to call 911 and await police.

    Police found one criminal dead at the scene and were unable to apprehend the one who fled.

    Nice shooting, ma’am.

    Homeowner’s Handy Gun Saved Him From Gunshot-Firing Home Invaders

    Thank goodness he was able to quickly grab a loaded gun.


    Sevierville, TN – Thanks to easy access to a loaded gun, a homeowner was able to defend himself from home invaders who fired at him through his own front door.

    Armando Morales reportedly answered a knock at his door shortly before 9:00 in the morning to find two men asking if they could cut firewood. When he denied permission and shut the door, the crooks fired multiple shots through the door, kicked it open, and entered the man’s home.

    Thankfully, Mr. Morales was able to quickly get his hands on his own loaded gun, which he fired at the murderous miscreants. They turned tail and ran, but one of them fired a shot at him through a house window as they beat their retreat in a red truck.

    A neighbor hopped in a vehicle and tailed the pair for a short distance to get a good description of the jerks’ truck. This description helped police find and arrest the pair of “alleged” dirtbags, both of whom were jailed under Attempted First Degree Murder and Aggravated Burglary charges.

    Score one more victory for armed citizens and easy access to loaded firearms. If Mr. Morales had not been able to quickly put his hands on a loaded gun and fire it at the intruders, it’s very likely that he would now be dead and a pair of murderers would be on the loose.

    "Armed Citizen" is my favorite section of the NRA Rifleman magazine. Sadly, very few of these stories get press even in the local areas they happen... and never on MSLSD.
